Well guys, I have done the Lloydz timing wheel and RPW baffles at the same time. Now according to many the Vic Swept pipes are **** so at best I may have gained back a little bit from the baffles. Conversely, what my seatofthepantsometer revealed was a Damn nice gain. Definitely well worth the money spent. Also, just for the record I set it at +4.

I did everything in my sig but the cams a few weeks ago, my butt dyno said "holly molly!". Did the cams last weekend, I noticed a bigger gain the first round than I did with the cams but it did gain. My butt dyno says I'm putting down some pretty serious power. ;)

The ATS dollar for dollar is the Best Mod you can do for a Victory .. I only have one regret about the ATS .. That I didn't do it sooner ..

I don't think so. The wheel was the first thing I did, no other mods at the time.

You guys won't regret it. I actually did enough reading that before I got the bike I knew I wanted the wheel. Awesome bang for the buck.

I'm gonna have to let this upgrade slide and figure losing 25 lbs off my belly/arse should equal the 4-6 hp the wheel will give you so I'm getting healthier and saving $182 so me and wife can take a trip. cheers :D

So, y'all are NOT power junkies... you are upgrade addicts. Oh! in this respect, you can only use 'whores' as in chrome whores. hehe!

I have a wheel sitting at home. My local dealer will do it but was very wary of having to strip my BW's exhaust to modify it + or - 1 notch just in case it pings.
Closest Vic dealer is 600km's away and it costs me in the vicinity of $500 to have them unbolt & put everything back together again. Love my dealer but you pay for their fan-bloody-tastic service.

I'm looking at doing the cams, if i pull the trigger on them i'll book a week off and have a specialists mob do the wheel & cams at the same time down on the coast.

I did not know that many people haven't done it yet:confused:. Best bang for the buck I think.

Power Whores! Every last on of ya's!!;):p
Damn right, all my life man, I love **** that's capable of just straight throwing my ass down. I've got an old YZ465, a modded Raptor 700R. If my Vic "felt" like it had the ass that my Raptor does it would be a badass!!

Would you prefer that we not care about the power our engines are making? I have an engine with a displacement that should make it a totally awesome power machine. Why would I not want to experience that power? This bike has a larger engine than my Civic or my wife's Corolla. The Vision weighs less than half of either of those vehicles and I want it to act like it does. Does that make any sense?

You'll hear folks say, "I didn't and was just fine". I call baloney. They have no clue if they were fine or not. Ask what their air fuel ratio was after installing the wheel. You can take it to the bank that they were too lean. Your bike is too lean right now, adding the wheel will take you even leaner. Many try to compensate for that by unplugging the O2s. That helps a LITTLE on some bikes. Out of 100 bikes about 10 of them will actually go leaner when you unplug the O2s. (You read that correctly). Are you one of the 10 or one of the 90? Willing you gamble your expensive engine on it? I went that route with my KP, I was one of the 10. On my CCT, the very first thing I bought was a tuner...figured I'd do it the right way this time and control my air fuel from start to finish.
